Class Experience

Learners will learn the basics of writing a descriptive story. This will be a fun writing activity that will take place for 50-minutes over the course of 4 days.

They will learn how to use conventions and word choice -- How do we decide the best words to use in a descriptive story? They will be introduced to a variety of adjectives and the best way to use these words while describing a noun.

They will learn how to use a Venn Diagram/how to organize their thoughts and notes.

Learners will also receive a rubric to help guide them in the drawing process. Students will draw a monster that looks like everything they have described in their writing. 

They will learn the proper way to write a rough draft after outlining their ideas. The teacher will show them how to make changes throughout the writing before typing their final copy.

Learners will use their rough draft to help guide them in typing a final copy to turn in to the teacher. They will have a rubric to show them what the teacher will be looking for in their writings.
Learners will need to spend some time (approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour per day) writing their story and drawing their monster. They will spend 50 minutes in class per day with the teacher working on their outline rough draft and final copy.
I will supply the learners with two rubrics (one for the writing and one for the art) and an outline of the week. Learners will need access to a computer to type out the final draft of their story. They will also be required to have some type of drawing paper to draw their monster, as well as markers, pencil crayons or crayons.
I will have a rubric showing the expectations with a glow and grow report for both the writing piece and the drawing.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
